That is going to be a great space. I look forward to seeing it come to life.

I would look into Mitsubishi electric they have smaller one room systems that could work well for your setup. We have some at work they work well and seem pretty quiet.

I would love to get one, hopefully in the near future!!..But for now, the window unit will have to do
I still have a long way to go on the rest of the room, then maybe I can splurge on one those units (if the wifey allows

Re: Garage Conversion :)

When selecting an A/C size, remember that electronics add heat. A projector and a nice AVR will add more than perhaps you think.

I recently added a window A/C to my office, which is a converted bedroom. Although the house HVAC system does a really nice job, having 3 PCs on with four 27" monitors made the room about 4 degrees warmer than the rest of the house. A 5000 BTU window unit did the trick, but this room is a lot smaller than your garage area.
